almost....7500 has the next level up of micro dimming and a slightly higher refresh rate, other than that...they are basically the same in terms of PQ. Keep in mind, both are native 240hz panels though.
I personally did not see much of a difference when I compared them.
Here is Samsung's comparison chart. http://www.samsung.com/us/module/2011_tv_spec_grids/led-print.html
In the chart Samsung uses a parameter called "Clear Motion Rate", but all the E7000 series panels have a native 240hz refresh. Samsung factors in micro-dimming and a handful of other motion adaptive features to come up with (in their opinion) higher perceived visual quality. A lot of purists turn off or greatly reduce the setting of most of these controls, and honestly, I think for most material looks better with them off or reduced.
The point is, when properly adjusted there shouldn't be much difference in visual quality between panels in the E7000 series.

Did the 2 point first to get as close to 6500k, then did the 10pt, haven't gone into the cms yet. I don't think it needs it but ill mess with it at some point..
That seems to be incredibly low, even lower than a bad IPS screen? Something wrong with your i1Pro??
Just a question... Are ALL panel Versions in the 7100 series line using a S-PVA type panel? I can't seem to get a answer from Samsung. The latest email response I got was The 7100 series use TFT panels.
Again, much appreciated for the info.
The 240 vs. the 120 may well be worth the $$. The 120 motion was annoying at times & for this $$ annoying should not be the case.
I did see the UN60ES7150 for $1950. In a line with all the other models the picture really stood out.
Hopefully this next Samsung we get will last longer than the previous one. Dealing with customer service has been & continues to be a real problem.
Can CE Dimming be defeated on this set? I know it could on the old B series but not the C series.
If not on this one then what about on the 7500 or 8000?
And can the micro dimming and such be turned off if you don't like it?)
For all those models, the only way is to use Movie mode - that disables both CE and micro-dimming, but you can't disable them separately.
If you have broad vewing angles then a LED is not for you.
As good as the sammy's are you really sacrifice picture quality going side to side. If you're far enough away from it (beyond 12 feet) it gets better.. Don't let the pictures on the forums fool you - its really profound if you're coming from a plasma.
A fantastic bargain for you would be the PNE6500 - has the same panel and quality of the E8000 series plasmas without all the frills and very cheap.
Everyone has their opinion, go to a store and go view one - but do this - get the controls, put it in movie mode with a warm color temperature and a DVD / Bluray you've watched and do your own test - don't just watch the screen with their test disc use something you're familiar with.
I recently bought the 7150, but hearing horror stories about the latest firmware. My TV is mostly used for gaming, does the latest firmware offer me anything?
Current version is 1013, Game mode is not used as I felt the auto motion plus is turned off, and it needs to be ON set to clear, though I do use the game mode for Gears 3, if it's not on (Game mode), I get delay in active reloading!
well first off I don't have SyncPlus app, I must have deleted it already. then I'm pretty good to go then?
No, SyncPlus app came from firmware 1022. There is no way to delete it once its installed, but you can disable it then uncheck the terms and conditions agreement - this will permanently disable it. When/if you update the firmware, you will find this app on the last page of apps in SmartHub.
I have my brightness around 52/53 with R-G-B offsets set at 17. Watching my overall current draw during dark scenes, it confirms that the set does not dim nearly as much as it did before. Edited by EAnglum - 11/23/12 at 11:57am
"The ES7000 presents a full HD 3D image, resolving full horizontal and vertical detail in the third dimension. Unlike the 55″ version of the ES8000 we reviewed, it doesn’t draw an entirely flawless Right Eye image, with the extra information appearing with a slight stippled effect. We thought this was a thing of the past when we saw that the UE55ES8000 was free of it – whether or not it’s down to the difference in panel size or series, we’re not sure."
I have no idea what they are talking about...all I know is that 3D on our TV is amazing. One point that many will not argue is that Samsung has one of the best 3D sets on the market (ES line).
So if you view with the left eye closed even from up close you see no stippling or dot or line skipping in 3D?
Maybe that is just on the Euro ES7000 model and not the US ES71000 then. (I know they get saddled with non-defeatable DNR on ALL samsung models in Europe, while thankfully ever since very late A-series firmwares we have been able to get true AMP and DNR off when set to zero in the US/Canada).
Another basic question for you guys that know more than the basics: Does the faster dual core processor on the 7150 vs. the 6150 have any effect on streaming quality? I was getting some wierd pixeling at times using Netflix via wireless. Before installing the new TV I'll be hardwired & have added a cable internet service that tests much faster than the dsl service here. Too many variables so I'm wondering if the faster processor speed effects such apps & content quality or whether the hardwire & internet speed will solve the issue. I also don't know how these things buffer the streaming content.
SPDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format) commonly known as an optical cable.
I use to know them as a toshlink cable as I believe Toshiba had something to do with there invention.
I have recently connected a Bose Cinematic II to the television this is a 2.1 unit.
In the sound setting in the set I have attempted to change the sound output to Dolby Digital or DTS It is grayed out. I attempted this change in Movie Mode and Standard mode no success.
The samsung book and the on screen manual are silent on this selection. I thought I saw a post here about three weeks ago on SPDIF but I can not find it.
Two questions is PCM the correct?? and only output source??.
I am using the original firmware 1022 which came with the set.
Any insight or info would be appreciated.I will contact Samsung support on this issue but generally I finf their information poor.
You're TV will not pass DD or DTS from another source. If you are watching OTA or one of the applications (Netflix), you're TV will output DD when the signal is available. If you want to get DD/DTS from a blu-ray player, you will have to go directly to your AVR.
